This was my first book by Elizabeth Hoyt. I saw her third book, The Serpent Prince while walking through Barnes & Noble the other day and wondered how a snake could be prince. When I pursed the cover I discovered this was part of a series and off I went to find the first in the series!
The Raven Prince, where do I start?
Well, I really didn’t get the whole story angle about the Raven and the Princess. Sorry, that really didn’t hold my interest. It was the story between Anna and Earl of Swarthingham (Edward de Raaf). Edward survived smallpox. The pox killed his entire immediate family and left him scared. He was an avid researcher and writer of agrarian journals and thus cultivates a friendship with other like-minded rogues who all band together to help each other in times of need. Hence, the building of the Prince series.
While this wasn’t the best or the worst romance I’ve read before, I did enjoy it. If you haven’t found this series, it’s not too far into it so there isn’t much back-reading to do.
I’m not so sure I liked how Edward treated Anna, felt he was a bit of a jerk most of the time. He came round in the end but in between, I thought he was unworthy of her.
